Fireman Gives Mouth-To-Mouth To Roasted Cat

by | 11th, September 2008

WHAT does a roasted cat taste like? A fireman brings one to life:

Sweating and breathing heavily from fighting the fire, Mr. Machado was still making faces and picking fur from his mouth when he told a reporter there wasn’t much hesitation involved. He had rescued the cat from a burning, second-floor apartment on Summer Street “and it really needed air and it couldn’t wait,” he said.

So he began mouth-to-mouth breathing on the cat as he carried it out to the sidewalk, where police and paramedics were ready with oxygen, and left it with them while he went back inside the apartment. Paramedics administered oxygen while he was inside the building and, at the next opportunity, Mr. Machado resumed mouth-to-mouth, and the cat, a tiger angora, revived and was resting comfortably in the animal rescue van, awaiting a ride to the veterinarian.

Was it good?

Asked what it tasted like giving the breath of life to a cat, Mr. Machado just laughed, grimaced and said, “Like fur.”

Cat fur…
